Great Expectations

Location: Townsend TN
Accommodations: 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to Great Expectations where your dreams of staying at a log cabin in the mountains will become reality! This secluded 2 bedroom/2 bath cabin is all that you can hope for. Located in the beautiful and exclusive golf community of Laurel Valley, Great Expectations is a very comfy home away from home.

On the first floor, you will find an open floor plan with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. The living area features a sofa, 2 rocking chairs, a wood burning fireplace and a large flat screen TV. The adjoining kitchen has plenty of space for cooking meals for your family. The fully equipped kitchen is just the right size for gathering around the table. The master bedroom on the main floor features a huge log king size bed. It has a flat screen TV also. A dresser and large walk in closet make this convenient for your stay.

Upstairs you will find an open loft for playing games with the family or just hanging out. There is a sofa sleeper for two more guests to sleep on. The 2nd bedroom is upstairs as well as the 2nd bathroom. The upstairs bedroom has a queen size bed with a huge walk in closet, dressers & a chair for reading. We have placed a twin size roll out bed for a child as well.

On both the front and back decks, you will find accommodations for eating meals outside or just relaxing with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. A nice size hot tub sits on the side deck for your enjoyment as well!

RENTING THIS CABIN INCLUDES THE PRIVILEGE OF USING THE SEASONAL SWIMMING POOL AND YEAR ROUND FITNESS CENTER AT THE COUNTRY CLUB, WILD LAUREL.

Please note that the driveway to this cabin is somewhat narrow and drops off on one side. It is large enough for up to 3 vehicles but backing out could be harder for some. There is also a parking space up above the cabin on the side of the road. It can be used for a vehicle or trailer.

This cabin is located in Townsend TN just outside of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is about 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge and another 10-15 minutes from Gatlinburg. You will find lots to do like zip lining, horseback riding, sight seeing, river tubing and much much more just minutes from the cabin.

Great Expectations comes with FREE seasonal swim privileges at the Wild Laurel Country Club and year round usage of the fitness center.

    We loved the location, the amenities, community pool and the smooth check in process. Thanks for making sure we had a pack-n-play too!
  • - 6/28/2024

    The cabin was setup perfectly for our family of 3, we all had tons of space and privacy, laundry was a specific plus! The kitchen was stocked with more than we needed, hot tub and grill were great, the bathrooms were nice and updated. It was decorated so nicely, we kept saying how we wanted to come back to see it in the winter! Truly our favorite one yet!
  • - 6/6/2024

    Beautiful cabin immersed in the forest. Lovely front and back porch, kitchen, and bedrooms. We also love the loft seating area. Looking forward to another stay.

    Cabin is in a great location and is in terrific condition-well kept, clean and updated with newer appliances. We were very comfortable and loved the hot tub. Will likely return.
  • - 11/12/2023

    We really enjoyed the peace and relaxation with a perfect location with easy access to all the surrounding activities
  • - 10/29/2023

    The cabin was perfect for our need (2 couples), quiet, very well equipped, comfortable, and nicely appointed.
  • - 10/24/2023

    Amazing cabin! The views are amazing, and the trip to the cabin is definitely one of the most picturesque in the valley! Cabin was clean and cozy, and the management team thought of everything to make our stay perfect! Will definitely be back!
  • - 10/20/2023

    Wonderful cabin. Wonderful experience. Every detail covered. Had a family of bears greet us on our first evening. They wondered through while we took some video. The leaves falling, squirrels barking, and birds chirping made the back porch the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee. We hope we spend more nights in this cabin.
  • - 10/8/2023

    Great Expectations delivers!! Such a sweet little cabin tucked away over the side of the mountain. Sit on the back deck in the morning with your coffee and listen to the birds sing their song of daybreak. You can't help but smile and feel at peace. Watch as the squirrels play and then stare at you as they seem to scold you for invading their space. And they seem to really like a game of peek-a-boo as I caught them often peeking around the edge of the tree to see if I was still there. Inside the kitchen is very well equipped to cook your favorite meals. My husband liked the upstairs mattress better then the downstairs. We had a great relaxing week at this cabin and even got to play several games of dodge the walnuts as the trees decided to let them drop during our stay. It made for good times.
  • - 9/19/2023

    The cabin was SO cute and comfy. We never did see any bears at the cabin. We were able to grill steaks and had the keurig for morning coffee. Everything else during our stay was awesome! Enjoyed the hot tub! We both have back issues & very picky with our mattresses, but found the bed to be pretty comfortable. Cabin was very clean. We never saw spiders, scorpions or anything - thank goodness!
  • - 9/5/2023

    Wonderful, very clean cabin. Great location. We will definitely go back again!
  • - 8/29/2023

    Great cabin, overall wonderful time.cabin was clean and beautiful, great views
  • - 7/7/2023

    We loved the cabin! It was private and quite. The cabin was clean and neat and easy to find. We saw a momma bear and her 2 cubs right in front of the cabin where we park the car. Loved every minute of our stay.
  • - 6/25/2023

    This cabin was exactly what we were looking for, we were heading to Kingsport to see my aunt in an assisted living facility and take every opportunity to stay in the Smokies. This cabin checked all the boxes from location to ease of access, beautifully decorated and CLEAN. I plan to save info and hope it remains as a rental for a future extended visit.
  • - 6/11/2023

    Very nice cabin. We enjoyed it very much. Will be sure to book with Smokey Cabins again on our next vacation in the Smokey Mountains.
  • - 5/3/2023

  • - 4/17/2023

    We loved our time in the cabin. Felt very safe and secure in the community. The cabin had everything we needed to enjoy the space. Perfect trip for our family of 4...including a 5 year old and 3 year old. We were only sad we didn't see any bears.
  • - 3/27/2023

    Super cozy cabin! Stocked with everything needed. Amazing places to eat nearby and not to far from Pigeon Forge.
  • - 2/24/2023

    We loved the cabin. We heard Barred owls every day.

  • - 1/15/2023

    We loved the cabin. It was very clean, cozy and well equipped. Townsend is a great place to visit, even in the winter. Everything was comfortable at the cabin also.
  • - 1/6/2023

    The cabin was absolutely perfect!!
  • - 12/30/2022

    So relaxing, convenient, and beautiful! Loved the Christmas decorations
  • - 12/7/2022

    The cabin was clean and well appointed with everything we needed in the kitchen. The bed was comfortable. The entire booking, check in and check out process was smooth and easy. When I discovered there was no hair dryer in the cabin, the response was quick and one was dropped off the next day! We love staying in Laurel Valley for it’s easy access to hiking trails. We would definitely stay in this cabin again!
  • - 12/4/2022

    Over all it was a great stay.
  • - 11/28/2022

    We stayed over thanksgiving and it was wonderful! Loved that the cabin was tucked away and it was very quiet! Definitely will be booking again
  • - 11/11/2022

    Quiet, clean, comfy, spacious, secluded cabin. Would stay here again. Hosts are very quick to respond.
  • - 9/25/2022

    The cabin was absolutely amazing, we truly enjoyed our stay. We hiked daily and it was so nice to come back at the end of the day to the cabin with all the comforts of home. The place was decorated for the season, there were little touches around the place that were just adorable. I highly recommend staying here when visiting the area.
  • - 9/13/2022

    From booking to completing our stay, this cabin was nothing short of perfect. I had plenty of communication from the host through-out the booking process and leading up to our stay. The direction and acess information was very clear and eliminated any issues arriving. The cabin itself is exactly as the listing states. It is PERFECT. I was aprehensive going into it as it is part of a country club, but you would have no idea if you stayed without knowing there was a golf course about 1/2 mile away. The location of the cabin is very private and secluded. The kitchen was well stocked with everyday necessities (cooking utensils, cooking basics - salt, pepper, oil-, along with updated appliances. The view was spectacular and the hot tub got used every night! We only had two people in our party but the cabin could have easily slept 2 couples comfortably, and additional on couches. There was good wifi through the property along with smart TVs to allow us to connect streaming services for evening down time. The location in regards to Great Smoky Mountain National Park is perfect. Townsend is a beautiful, quaint, town and doesn't have the flashy tourism that some of the other area towns have. It's about a 10 minute drive to the entrance to the park with easy access to Cades Cove. We'll definitely be back!
  • - 9/8/2022

    A wonderful cabin. So peaceful. Quiet. We a long car (Jeep Grand Cherokee L) and a 4 bike rack, it was a tough first trip up as I was not prepared. Had to back in the rest of the times in and out, but not a big issue. I’ll trade the seclusion we got for the driveway any day. What a quaint and beautiful place. We loved it. Clean. Comfortable.
  • - 9/5/2022

    This cabin was so clean and so perfect in every way! I don’t like staying places because I have had bad experiences in the past with bugs and dirty places but my mind was quickly put to ease with the cleanliness and quality of the cabin. Check in and out was very easy and all the emails with instructions and reminders were perfect! No complaints other than the driveway but it can’t be controlled and it wasn’t too bad because we knew to expect it based off of previous reviews and the description of the cabin.
  • - 8/7/2022

    We really enjoyed our stay at Great Expectations cabin. Very clean, private, and great location to the SMNP. The cabin itself had very comfortable bed and well-stocked kitchen. The hot tub and charcoal grill were an added bonus! The check-in and check-out process was smooth and detailed instructions were helpful. We would gladly return to Great Expectations.
  • - 7/17/2022

    Loved our stay. Great cabin. Secluded, but close to everything we needed. Nice renovations. Peaceful porch, deck, and hot tub! Country club pool and bar a bonus. Super easy check in/out. Loved how quickly we could get to hiking trails. Enjoyed playing board games with the family.
  • - 7/9/2022

    Beautiful cabin. Very clean. Loved being so secluded.
  • - 6/26/2022

    This was a beautiful cabin in the canopy of the trees. The cabin has been renovated and is very nice. In addition to the essentials, they have baskets of games and a hot tub nestled in the trees. We had a wonderful stay!
  • - 4/16/2022
